Teacher Robin Pulido from St. Rose of Lima School has been selected for the prestigious Life Guard Teacher Fellowship Program by George Washington’s Mount Vernon. The Fellowship Program, which began in 2013, enables classroom teachers and educators to work on projects in a variety of themes inspired by the life, leadership, and legacy of George Washington. Fellows work closely with the staff at the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington as they research and produce work to be distributed to a national audience.
Robin plans to utilize digital resources and tools to create interactive activities for students to explore, analyze, and understand the relationship between religion, slavery, and abolition during Washington’s time. She currently teaches eighth grade U.S. history, K-8 technology, and coaches the grades 6-8 Academic Decathlon at St. Rose of Lima School in Chula Vista, California. She is an alumna of the George Washington Teacher Institute, Monticello’s Barringer Fellowship, the Society of the Cincinnati American Revolution Master Teachers Program, and has attended numerous Landmark seminars hosted by the National Endowment for the Humanities. She has been a speaker at San Diego CUE Tech Fairs, CUE (Computer Using Educators) National Conferences, and the California Council for Social Studies Conference.
St. Rose of Lima is very proud of Mrs. Pulido, who also just celebrated 40 years teaching in the Diocese of San Diego!
